This place is really good. It's not a big place where you will see a lot of (damaged) koalas, but to see how the volonteers here can take care of these beautiful creatures, you can't be charmed. Besides, they know a lot about koalas (of course) and they will teach you things that you don't expect :)

Good for overseas travellers and aussies alike. Those volunteers that give ther time at the hospital really need to be commended. We were lucky enough to see a baby koala that was being nursed back to health by one of the volunteers

We were driving down the coast and read a blog that mentioned the Koala Hospital. Decided we would stop to check it out. I am so glad that we did. I didn't know what to expect and I was overwhelmed with the opportunities to get close to and learn about these animals. The women who we encountered working there were... More

The Koala Hospital is well worth a visit. It was raining the day we were there so it was a little difficult to get the full experience but basically, it is a real working hospital. There is a board at the entry informing visitors of the patients who are there, why they are there, date of omission and treatment. You... More

This sanctuary for sick and injured koalas is so interesting. We saw baby koalas in humidicribs, an injured koalas in intensive care and other treatments being performed. Entirely run on donations.

A very informative place on how injured koala's are cared for. Staff are really knowledgeable. The babies are so cute I sponsored my own Koala before I left, and have been back a few times to just watch them. A must see if in Port Macquarie.

Holidaying with friends in Port Macquarie and we decided to visit the Koala Hospital. It is free but there is ample opportunity to donate. Well worth visiting. We went to the 3pm feeding and were given a very informative talk by one of the volunteers(Helen). She is worth her weight in gold. Would certainly go back again.

This is a must to visit. The information that the staff can tell you about the Koala's and their work in rescuing them and treating them at the Koala Hospital is most informative. You are so close to so many of these adorable creatures that there really is not the need to have to nurse them. Plus there is the... More
